Rollock on the Scripture

We have no need simply of any other light, or of any one special evidence to demonstrate this matter, but that very light which is in Scripture. For the Scripture (being the first and immediate word of God) is of authority sufficient in itself (autopistos), and so likewise of itself most clear and evident…For like as the light of the sun is not perceived nor to be seen by means of any other light, for that it so far exceeds all other bodily and external light, so, that spiritual light of the Scripture hath no need in itself of any other light…for of all the spiritual lights that enlighten the mind withal, it is the most bright and most beautiful in the world.
